A note about serious food allergies

"Al Pastor" isn't some dude named Al, nor some dude named Al whose very religious. It's a Mexican pork preparation, with spices and pineapple, spit-grilled and delicious. (It's also adopted from Lebanese cooking; food is universal!) These tacos are inspired by Al Pastor, and we hope get close to those unique flavors. You can call us Al.
